    Great atmosphere at one of the oldest restaurant in Barcelona. A pianist plays hits songs adds to the vibe. There is no dress code but will be nice to dress up for a date at this restaurant.

    Elegant setting in this culture rich restaurant, welcomed by beautiful piano performance inside. Had the best gazpacho in my life and really balanced and flavourful paella, well worth many revisits!

    Amazing paella & sea food. Pricy, elegant arrive early or make a reservation. Not a Dress code but try not to go like if you were just going out from the beach this place is very nice and elegant.

    Best paella in Barcelona is 7 Portes' Paella Parellada. A nice jamón, some bunyols de bacallà (cod fritters) and paella for 2 if you're 3 (portions are huge) and you're good to go!

    No.1 paella for a reason. I really liked the idea of having the name of the person who has eaten in your table on the receipt. Some pretty cool people have dined there!

    Founded in 1836, this is one of the oldest dining institutions in Barcelona. Take a break from the nonstop tapas and grab a bite for some of the best Paella and seafood in all of the ciudad.

    Paella prices from 15 to 23 euro. We had the king choice only with seafood and it was delicious. Maybe it is a bit expensive but you should definetly come here and try! 2 people can share one paella

    The best paella I've had in my life. 1 paella can be enough for 2 persons so it's really good value for money. Classy place, a must visit restaurant in BCN

    If you find to eat good paella, you are the right place. Prices are not too much, all right I think. Their sangria is the best sangria I have ever tasted in BCN. Paellas are about 20€, sangria is 16€

    Delicious paella with fresh seashells, good service and a great atmosphere with loads of history. We dined at Woody Allen and Ava Gardner's table, can't deny that it added a little extra excitement :)

    Sangria is very good, you should try small seafood plate, snails are amazing and oysters are worth to try. They do not know english so make sure what you ordered. :) -waiting for the paella :)

    Established in 1836.Try Paella with seafood, seafood plate, mussels with onions and tomato, Sangria dry one or Sp red wine Torres or Pingus Chocalate desserts are nice too. Reservation is needed.

    Catalan food. Nice atmosphere. Excellent service. For the most tender meat ever, go for the lamb with potatoes. Paella also good. So are the desserts.

    Could be the best paella served in Barcelona served with great sea food salad and delicious sangria. Remember to check the back of your seat to see which famous star had his/her dinner there.

    Don't believe the negative reviews you read. Great paella reasonably priced, 11 euro bottle of good house white wine. And to top it off, this beautiful 175 year old restaurant offers free wifi!!!

    7 Portes was established in 1836 and to this day continues to provide some of the city’s best seafood and paella dishes. It even served the young Picasso back when he was living in the city!
  • Nazli S.
    Rich's man paella (fish only), marinated mussels and small seafood plate are perfect!

    Best paella in barcelona. Beautiful restaurant and great service. If you are two and do not want to spent a lot of money you can take one paella and cava 1/2. You get full :)

    Don't fall into the tourist traps, spend a little more and get your money's worth! Local place and food, good atmosphere, great seafood, paella, wine and crème brulée. I'd say don't miss it.

    Favorite restaurant in Barcelona. Paella is very delicious, Rich man's Paella (fish only) and Back Rice I can recommend. but be careful original Paella is very salty. Ask make it not salty, "Sin Sal"

    This is certainly the city's most famous paella, which is always good. Try also seafood and rice dishes prepared in traditional way like Fideuà with prawnsor the Zarzuela with lobster.
  • Jessica B.
    Paella is so good! But also so salty so just beware of that if you're not too keen on salty food. But this place is a deffo must see and I will be recommending to all my friends
  • Elizabeth V.
    Old fashioned in a good way. Tried paella for the first time and it was very tasty. Service is good but they take their time slow. All visitors are tourists.
  • Seval H.
    If you want to eat Paella and you have to choose one place to eat, you can prefer this place. The ambience of the restaurant is also cool. You can go with Rich Man's paella.

    Paella is great, in-house Vino Rosado/Rosats is great. But DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT try 'Pijama' as a dessert/postre. You want to end on a good note, don't you? :)

    Dating back to 1836, this place has served famous characters including Picasso. Order the mixed paella seafood or a Valencian-style paella served with black rice. Delicious! Read more

    Always call to reserve or ar least check if they are busy - they usually are... And for a goos reason. One of the best restaurants in Barcelona, in my opinion.

    Great place! Not cheap but food is authentic and delicious! Aware of bread baskets. First one is free but the second one is not! And it is not cheap at all!

    Great restaurant to have a coffee with desert and feel it's old atmosphere and traditions. All the rest dishes-really nothing special (except paella and grilled seafood)

    Fried cod fish sauteed with spinach and raisins was beyond of perfection. Paella marinesco(seafood) can be tried but not as delicious as 1 year ago.

    Should make a reservation in advance. Fishermans paella is nice. Try pijama as a dessert. Profiterols are not good enough. White house wine is amazing

    Nice and emblematic location, classic catalan cuisine and environment. The staff is professional, and the service is fast. We had paella and black rice, it was okay, but not the best around. Not bad.

    The wine should be ordered by the bottle or by half the bottle. The sausage and beans were amazing. Was also great to eat next to the autograph of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

    It's not an exaggeration to say this is the best paella I've had in my life. Though it's called the "Rich Man's Paella" for a reason. ;)

    We had seafood paella and black rise. It is good whereas it is not the best we had in Barcelona. Catalan food might be more delicious though

    Paella was good... But they say paella for two is big enough for three... Pure lie, i was still hungry after one full portion.. Oh and they serve red wine cold as hell..And do not let you taste it be4

    Paella & Canelloni are amazing, very good quality of food; yet its an overpriced place.. Better to reserve before going in order not to wait long! We've waited an hour.
